George "Geohot" Hotz, the man who posted the PlayStation 3 "root key" online and opened up Sony's console to piracy, has been arrested for possession of marijuana.
Above The Law reports that Hotz, 22, who also devised the iPhone jailbreak, was stopped by police at a checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas, on his way to give a talk at the SXSW festival in Austin.
Police found a quarter-ounce of marijuana, and "chocolate edibles" equivalent to an eighth of an ounce, in his car. Hotz was booked for a felony and later posted $1,500 bail.
Hotz was apparently on the straight and narrow, working for Facebook after he escaped the legal might of Sony. The companysued Hotz for his role in PS3 piracy, but the protracted legal dispute was eventually settled out of court before full proceedings began.
